Подумалось

...in the manifest image, our surface image of the world and of ourselves, we think of ourselves as free. We act for reasons. We act rightly or wrongly, virtuously or viciously. We take or fail to take responsibility.

In the scientific image, our depth image of the world and ourselves, we're determined by something we aren't conscious of, our reasons are mere rationalizations. Morality is either nonsense or it reduces to something else.


— Daniel Bonevac

Подумалось в связи с этим:

Такое ощущение, что бодания Докинза с антидокинзистами отражают взаимонесовместимость того, что Уилфрид Селларс называл “the ‘manifest’ image of man-in-the-world”, с одной стороны, и “the scientific image” — с другой. Взгляд Докинза — не вполне полностью: он тоже оперирует понятиями добра и зла, морали и ответственности, но все же — направлен на scientific image; взгляд противоборствующей стороны прикован к manifest image.
